Best Wishes to David Lab researchers Taylor, Jazmin, and Beili!


As summer continues to roll on, and summer REU’s are approaching their completion, we have to say goodbye to our summer REU researchers Jazmin and Beili, and to recently graduated David Lab researchers like Taylor who are moving on to graduate school.

Taylor McCart, who recently graduated from UC Davis with a B.S. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, is moving on to seek her M.S. in Biochemistry at California State University, Northridge. Taylor worked with graduate student mentor Brittany Anderson-Steele, and spent a total of two years conducting research in the David Lab. We will miss Taylor here at the David Lab, but we are proud she is moving forward to graduate school, and we know she is ready to succeed at the next level.

Taylor, Brittany, and Sheila say goodbye. Good luck at CSUN, Taylor!


Taylor marks her permanent spot in the David Lab.


Jazmin Stenson spent the summer as an undergraduate researcher in the David Lab working with postdoctoral researcher Alan Raetz via the Chemistry and Chemical Biology Graduate Admissions Pathways Program (CCBGAP) from Xavier University of Louisiana. Jazmin is completing her B.S. in Biochemistry at Xavier University of Louisiana next year.

Jazmin leaves her fingerprint on the David Lab wall.



Beili Huang participated in summer research at the David Lab via the ACS Project SEED Program. Beili worked with graduate student mentor Kori Lay, and is starting on her B.S. in Chemical Engineering at UC Davis this fall.

Good luck Taylor, Jazmin, and Beili! Thank you for your hard work in the David Lab!

  • Down goes antimatter! Gravity's effect on matter's elusive twin is revealed September 27, 2023
    For the first time, in a unique laboratory experiment at CERN, researchers have observed individual atoms of antihydrogen fall under the effects of gravity. In confirming antimatter and regular matter are gravitationally attracted, the finding rules out gravitational repulsion as the reason why antimatter is largely missing from the observable universe.
  • Decreasing biodiversity may promote spread of viruses September 27, 2023
    How are environmental changes, loss of biodiversity, and the spread of pathogens connected? The answer is a puzzle. Researchers have now described one piece of that puzzle, showing that the destruction of tropical rainforests harms the diversity of mosquito species. At the same time, more resilient species of mosquitoes become more prevalent -- which also […]
  • Study sheds new light on strange lava worlds September 27, 2023
    In a new study, scientists have shown that sweeping molten oceans have a large influence on the observed properties of hot rocky Super-Earths, such as their size and evolutionary path.
  • New insights into the atmosphere and star of an exoplanet September 25, 2023
    A new study of the intriguing TRAPPIST-1 exoplanetary system has demonstrated the complex interaction between the activity of the system's star and its planetary features.
  • Did life exist on Mars? Other planets? With AI's help, we may know soon September 25, 2023
    Scientists have discovered a simple and reliable test for signs of past or present life on other planets -- 'the holy grail of astrobiology.' Researchers report that, with 90% accuracy, their artificial intelligence-based method distinguished modern and ancient biological samples from those of abiotic origin.
